Street art is sort of hard to find in Auckland, I looked in some of the obvious places first and visited a couple of spots where there used to be some – all to no avail. My mum told me about some at the Corbans Estate Art Centre near where she lives in Henderson and then I used Google to find some more. It would be great to see more in the inner city.
There was a street art festival on in Auckland’s K’ Rd last weekend and I managed to get along to that as well and will show those images in another blog.
It is good to see there is a scene here and even though it is small there is some great talent.
Corbans Centre, stupidly I did not record the artists names!
I really like the Maori influence in some of the work, keeping it uniquely New Zealand.
Though I recognised this artists style – Wert 159
There is massive hole where a failed tower was supposed to be built in Ponsonby, the hoardings have been painted and there was some really good pieces. I didn’t get to see it all as it hammered down with rain while I was there.
Jonny 4higher – I think!
I spotted this wall on the way!
It was great to see some art and not just the usual tagging that plagues the streets of Auckland.
